I repaired my broken fan belt with a drop of super glue - there is virtually no load on the belt and it now works perfectly again. A 30 sec quick fix.

Hi, we have Simpson top loading washing machine model number Esprit 550, the drum is not rotating and the spinning plastic rod in the centre of the drum is not spinning/rotating either


that is a direct drive

is the agitator (plastic rod )loose or sloppy
if you look down the inside of the agitator
do you see a nut at the base holding the agitator tight


if the timer is working
and water can pump in and out
that is good

bad
if you cant hear the motor click in
it will need to have the inspection cover taken off
for service or part replacement

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer cuts out after 5 minutes I am told it is the heat sensor attached to the red button inside the door but not sure how to access the sensor to replace it.


Its probably NOT the sensor causing the problem. Have you checked the fan belt, that its not broken, come off the pulley or stretched? Put your hand over the airvent outlet at the back after it has been running a few minutes, if there is a lot of hot air coming out, then belt is ok. If not, replace the fanbelt with a new one, and problem will be solved. The sensor pops out because of overheating - usually because either the fan belt is broken or stretched, or the lint filter is blocked. Hope this helps!

Drum turns and you feel some heat but does not dry clothes


check to make sure you have no lint buildup in the drier itself along with lint build up in the exhaust hose leading from the back of the drier. If there isn't proper exhaust from the lint filter to the outside of the house or apt. then the clothes will get hot but still be wet.

Hope this helped

Tumble Dryer Belt Keeps Snapping


Perhaps the zipper caused sleeve damage where the drum interfaces with the sleeve. Check for free rotation issues and periodic noises when rotating the unit by hand. Here are a couple of other possibilities: When old belt was replaced the belt was misaligned (not perpendicular) to the drum. When removing ore installing the drum there was a loss of sleeved material that the drum rides on. When replacing the drum into the sleeve and closing the drier up sleeve is not flush, something did not fit together quite right. Remember very small alignment problems will be magnified 3 fold on the clearances of the sleeve to drum. And lastly the motor bearings could be starting to slide in the bearing raceway which can intermittently stop the motor briefly, doing this will also snap the belt. Check to make sure that the motor turns freely when the belt is not on. Spin it in both directions to ensure that there are not any problems. Once you get it all back together check rotation of the drum by hand, there will be some tension but it should move, if not retrace your steps.

TIP OF THE DAY--
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not runnig straight through then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. This wont really fix the main condition, but it will not hurt. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.
Best of luck.

My dryer (Simpson Minimax 150) seems to be choked? It gets hot and the drum spins, but it doesn't dry clothes and upon opening the door, heaps of steamy air pours out. The lint filter is clean. Is there...


Probably the belt from the fan has broken. The fan is what moves the hot steamy air out of the unit.

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
